Maverick Sabre – ‘The Travelling Man’

So, where to begin? Michael Stafford aka Maverick Sabre is a young London-born and Irish-raised musician who I discovered in Nialler9‘s list of the ‘Best Irish Music Downloads‘ in Day & Night Magazine.

This guy is astonishingly good. He recently released his debut record Travelling Man Mixtape for free via bandcamp. It’s a brilliant blend of Grime, Reggae, Electro, Dub Step and Hip Hop, although it isn’t genre specific it’s very fresh and substantive. Lyrically it’s deep and insightful, delivered with a raspy confidence as he tackles everything from heartache to the socio-political issues of everyday modern life.

Expect to hear much more from this guy in 2011.
